Provider Reviews

Dr. Bast is the best. He is a very caring and competent surgeon. He has cared for my son for several years and has always met his needs. He is also a good moral man. We are so blessed to have him in this community. He cares for several counties and specializes in superior care.

Review for Dr. Brady

A waste of time. She was impersonal and cold and her follow up is nonexistent. I told my nephew if he wanted a do nothing job to be a general practioner. Her thoroughness is nonexistent and she made me feel like I was wasting her time. I wish there were more choices so I could find another doctor..
